it in the united states. i keep ps of economic data about to, -- a key piece of economic data about to come out. >> gdp and payrolls. the figure of gdp, probably a continuing growth, around 1.8%. important to understand that these figures are annualize, so it shows what the growth would be over the whole year if growth continued at the rate it does during this quarter. it is expected to be about 1.8%. it is coming from good figures in retail and housing spending -- on houses. there is a bit of a bounce in the housing market. whether it can be maintained is a very different question. what people are thinking is that growth has gone up a little bit, but it is not going to go up much further. the chief economist at schroders -- is what he said about it. >> the areas of strength in the gdp report, probably in the consumer and housing side, areas close to the electorate. although the headline is not very good, the details might be a little bit better from a political perspective. >> what people are expecting next year, probably growth of about 2.2%, 2.3%. >> not bad for europe's point of view.

as far as the president of the united states with what they put out earlier today. there is a case called griswald vs. conn. this was 1965, when the supreme court said that there is a constitutional requirement, that prohibited the states from banning the sale of contraceptives. i accept that as constitutional, and we tell people to go something they can be constructive with. but this is constructive and a difference between us that is not manufactured. we have babies in america and iowa that are aborted because they are baby girls and the mother wants a baby girl -- a baby boy in said of a girl. this is -- the people of by what did not care about this. i think it matters to a low girls that are being aborted. >> do you believe in the right to privacy which was put forward with griswold vs. connecticut? >> this is an important question for people to know -- >> i accept the decision of griswald. >> i take that as a no. >> then you misunderstand it. >> do you support an amendment to the u.s. constitution, the person had amendment that was proposed in the state of mississippi and failed? >>
challenging to regulate in a world where virtually nothing stops at our fiscal borders of the united states. and it's so particularly to in financial markets where the velocity with which money and transaction pass around the world is quite extraordinary. and so we can't assume that we can do only what we think works in the u.s. markets, although clearly the u.s. markets are our primary concern and focus. the way we go through these issues that is, we have dodd-frank, let's start with g20. apogee 20 level there's broad agreement about what needs to be done with respect to the derivatives markets, and it's been reemphasized and we commit to by the g20, including the united states over and over again. it's the valley of clearing but it's the valley of transparency and trade reported that its the valley of collateralized in positions itself for the given ever high level of agreement and we worked after every country, individual regulatory regimes and legislative processes. one of the challenges is, frankly, the mismatch in time to dodd-frank was passed really before legislation anywhere else i
